16. “You Got The Silver”

It’s easy to forget, considering that Keith Richards’ lovable mewl has been a constant on Rolling Stones’ LPs for so long now, that there was once a time when Keith provided nothing but backing vocals. His first true solo came on this slow-burner off Let It Bleed. Besides its historical importance, the song is an excellent example of Richards’ strengths as a songwriter and singer. His lyrics seem simple until they sneak up and hit home, while his wounded croon expertly projects vulnerability.
